This book gives solid advice about how to behave on interview day, and really pushes mock interviews, which are very helpful. The author details everything from clothing choices to ethical questions that may be asked on interview day. The advice is broad ranging and thorough.
No book can give you all the answers, as the key to a great interview lies in having great things to say - which can only come from each applicant's individual history, etc. However, I felt that I really gained confidence from using this book and will pass it on to my friends who are applying in the future.
As someone who helps train prospective med school students, I want to emphasize that whatever book you buy, you need to practice. Practice out loud and hopefully to another person who is listening to you and providing feedback.
This is NOT how the interview really goes, and if you prepare this way, you will NOT perform well!
I was interviewed by about 15 people at 7 schools this year, and was accepted to 3 of those schools (one of them is one of the best in the US). I give this book a lot of credit with helping me to organize my thoughts, motivations, and eventually figuring out what I wanted to say and how I wanted to say it.
I found that the majority of my interviews were very conversational in style, and this book teaches you a system that enables you to seamlessly steer the conversation and get your talking points across. Of course, it will take quite a bit of work on your part, but it will be worth the effort when you can effortlessly explain why you are the ideal candidate.
Do not buy any other book other than this one; you will simply be wasting your time. Also, don't worry too much about memorizing answers to lists of questions. It's a waste of time. The self-inventories that you will work on in this book are more than enough.
Sadly, he doesn't talk about the Multiple Mini Interview.
